I've used Window Seat Billie to create a set of four seasonal cards. I had so much fun playing with this lovely image and my head is still spinning with ideas on more ways to use it. You'll have to visit again soon to see how I've used Window Seat Billie for my Autumn card. This post contains the info on my Summer card. You can find my use of this image for a winter-themed card here and my spring-themed card here.
I printed the image onto a Authentique "Beautiful" pink plaid paper then fussy cut and carefully placed the new drapes to carry out my Summertime theme.
I used three different masks to add color and texture to my image.
1. I cut out just the window glass areas to stamp a summer tree scene from an old Stampin' Up! A Tree for All Seasons set. I also used this mask to airbrush the ground, sky and a bit of sun light.
2. I cut out just the bear to add texture using the nasty rag technique by pouncing Copic colored fibers of a piece of wash cloth over the Copic-filled bear.
3. I cut out the full image to airbrush the wall areas and floor.
This view shows my Copic-filled image for a summer-themed card. Glossy Accents covers the hearts and Inkssentials Enamel Accents black provides shiny, dimensional eyes.
A My Favorite Things Die-namics Fancy Flourish provides movement behind my flower cluster made of a Recollections Mulberry Paper Flower and Prima Fairytale Roses Baby Pink.

I'm including this pic to show you other ways that I've filled this wonderful image for all four seasons. Make sure you stop by over the next few days to see how I've used them! This image can be easily used for holiday cards with paper-pieced holiday curtains, a coordinating scene in the window, a hat on Billie and the image surrounded by holiday die cuts! OH MY . . . the possibilities!!!
